National Bike Month celebrates all the reasons people ride — for fun, fitness, transportation, and health; and all the ways bicycling makes communities stronger —  like boosting the local economy and community spirit. 


Simsbury's annual Bike Month celebrations have included events, rides, classes, safety campaigns, and more.  Join us as we Bike to Work, Bike to School, and bike for fun!


Bike Month Proclamation at the May 8 Board of Selectmen's Meeting  

It’s official! Simsbury’s annual Bike Month Proclamation is one of the many things the Bike-Ped Committee does to keep bikes on the minds of our town officials and residents. We also reviewed upcoming events, recognized bike-related award winners (we’ll share here, too) and shared a few safety tips.  Learn more

May is Bike to the Library Month!  

Bike to Simsbury Public Library and ask in the Children's Room for a paper bicycle to color for the bulletin board display.  They have many bike-themed books on display to borrow.
